Urban Visionaries: Part 3
FLAMIN-supported films by Charlotte Ginsborg and Georgina Starr, are now on show as the third programme of FLAMIN's Urban Visionaries programme launches as part of Art on the Underground's Canary Wharf Screen.
FLAMIN Long Form, the third part of FLAMIN's Urban Visionaries season will screen daily at Canary Wharf Underground station until Wednesday 13 April. The final instalment of the three-part series brings together two long form single screen works from the FLAMIN archive.
Commissioned through the second round of FLAMIN Productions in 2010, Melior Street by Charlotte Ginsborg presents eight documentary portraits of individuals connected with the London road from which the film takes its title, to investigate their relationship to community, transience and belonging within the city.
Theda by Georgina Starr, which was commissioned through FLAMIN's LAFVA scheme, takes as its starting point a photograph of the silent film actress Theda Bara (1885-1955), who bore an uncanny resemblance to Starr's mother. Starr began a year of performing alone in her studio; building sets, creating props and costumes and acting out the expressions, roles and actions from the imagined lost film.
